The Oldsmobile Achieva is a front-wheel drive compact sedan and coupe that was introduced by Oldsmobile for the 1992 model year. The Achieva was based on the GM N-body platform, which it also shared with its siblings the Pontiac Grand Am and Buick Skylark. The Achieva replaced the GM N-body Cutlass Calais after the Calais' final 1991 model year, and ended production after the 1998 model year.
The Achieva was a compact car produced by the General Motors' Oldsmobile division from 1991 to 1998 and was available as a sedan or coupe. It was offered in four different trim levels during its production run; S, SC, SL, and SCX. The engines available throughout the production run included different versions of the Oldsmobile-developed Quad 4, ranging from the high-output LGO (RPO code) version and an even higher output special "W41" version of the LGO Quad 4 (used in the SCX models), a normal DOHC LD2 version of the 2.3 L Quad 4, the SOHC "Quad OHC" variant, as well as the later Quad 4-based "2.4L twin cam" LD9. A pair of V6 engines were also offered including the Buick-sourced 90° 3.3 L "3300" V6 that was later replaced by Chevrolet's 60° 3.1 L "3100" V6. While a five-speed manual transaxle was initially offered as the standard base transmission, most Achieva models were sold with three-speed or four-speed automatic transaxles. The Achieva was last sold in model year 1998, after which it was replaced in the Oldsmobile lineup by the Alero for the 1999 model year.
